SOPHISTICATED IN SOUTHAMPTON
I’ve thumbed through last month’s issue of Architectural Digest so many times, always landing on this historic Southampton estate recently reimagined by interior design team Atelier AM, that it was definitely worth a little tour here on the blog. The interiors are sophisticated and beautifully restrained, from the French-inspired kitchen that opens to the screened porch to the layered and muted dining room, but it’s really the exterior and landscape design of the property, which was artfully crafted by master Miranda Brooks, that takes your breath away. Designed in the 1920’s, the French Norman-style house sits on a whopping five acres and includes a pool, pool house, an entry garden and a stone path that leads to a wisteria and clematis-clad tunnel in front of the house. According to the article, Brooks wanted to create the feeling of a peaceful kingdom, away from the hustle and bustle of the city and I think she accomplished that in spades. The icing on the cake for me is the hydrangea blue shutters on the brick facade and the sleeping porch right off the master bedroom that peeks out onto the pool. Sublime.
